This week was great!!! the highligh was by far our conferences with Elder Quentin L. Cook of the Twelve. We spent the entire week preparing for it. Because the conferences were to be held in our chapel, my comp and I were designated with a lot of things to do to make sure the chapel was 100% ready to receive an apostle. It was pretty stressful getting it all figured out, but it was so worth it. Elder Cook taught us about so many wonderful things. The stake conference with him was my favorite part. It was focused on “strengthening families through religious observance in the home”. He spoke a lot about the importance of daily scripture study and daily prayer in the family and weekly family home evenings. He left us a lot of promises that if we do those things, our children will learn and grow in the gospel and our families will be unified. They were such simple things he spoke, but it was so powerful. We had a few investigators there and they loved it. It really touched them and made them want to have those blessings in their families. I hope that everyone back home is following these counsels. It doens’t matter what the situation, if we apply these simple principles in the home, our families will be so blessed! I hope this next week goes well for all of you! Stay full of faith! Love you!
Beijinhos,
Elder Mehl
